Monster Printable Activities
This set of monster printables includes the following hands-on activities:
Scissor Skills (fine motor)
Cut apart the three strips. Can your child cut her way to the monster?
Name-a-Monster (creative thinking, fine motor, handwriting practice)
ABC Magnet Match (phonics)
Set a page on a cookie sheet. Let your child find the ABC magnet that corresponds with the monster’s color (example red = R, green = G, pink = P).
Ordinal Numbers (math, following directions)
Laminate monsters, if desired. Cut out each monster. Tell your child to put the monsters in a line. Teach him the ordinal numbers (you put the pink monster first and the blue monster second). Once your child understands first, second, third, fourth, and fifth, give him an order to put the monsters (Put the green monster first. Put the yellow monster second. Put the blue monster third.). You can also line up the monsters and ask your child, “Which monster is third? Which monster is fifth?”
My Monster Drawing Game (number recognition, art/creative thinking, fine motor)
You will need one die and two copies of the “My Monster” page to play this game with your child. Take turns rolling the die. As you roll, draw the body parts as indicated on the guide page. The first person to draw a complete monster wins the game!
My Monster Story (creative thinking, storytelling, literacy)
Let your child dictate his monster story to you while you type. This makes story writing easy for young children. They can write a great story without having to worry about handwriting, spelling, punctuation, etc. Kids usually write much better stories when someone scribes for them.
Sleepy Monsters (sorting, visual discrimination, phonics, ABC recognition)
Monster Eyes Math Mat
Print and laminate the math mat. Depending on your student’s ability, give him or her one die or two dice. Tell your student to roll the dice. Student should add the corresponding number of googly eyes to the monster. Clear the board and play again!
Monster Poem (literacy, memorization)
Monsters Book List
You do not need these exact books for these Monster Printables. Please use whatever monster-themed books your library has available and read, read, read to your child.
